    You can be grateful for the lovely rescue cat that is a great companion, but you cannot be grateful because you bought a big screen TV. No money can be spent.

    1) my salvation through Jesus Christ and the promise of everlasting life with Him, 2) my vision, 3) my legs to walk, 4) my sense of smell to smell flowers and pine trees and the ocean, 5) good friends I have known and loved over the years

    The fact that I get to experience this strange and fascinating thing called life, my family and friends, my creativity and imagination, the craziness of dreams, and having love of any kind, love for and love from.

    My neighbor trimmed my trees
    His wife gave me  a loaf of bread
    One of my friends found me the perfect present
    I found a collector coin in one of the boxes
    Laughter from  my friends

    This list is in no way in a preferential order.

    I am grateful for and to my education that i did not buy but earned . It has not only given my life purpose but also the means to achieve those purposes . It has put me in a position to not just help myself but also others .

    I am grateful for and to my parents and my siblings who look out for me and ask for nothing but my well-being in return .

    I am grateful for the faith I hold for god that allows me to respect everyone .

    I am grateful for and to  every person in my life who has made me who i am for better or for worse.

    i am grateful for my health everytime i see someone who has a little less than i do .

    These 5 senses came to me in answer to the question "Can You List 5 things that you are thankful for that you didn't buy." I love the challenge of answering a question with a Hub.

    At first I was stumped. How do I write a whole Hub when the question only asked for 5 things? read more
